- Except the Francés
You need to see both sides of this statue for it to make any sense. It commemorates the many thousands of Galicians who left to search for a better life. Some found one, some didn't.
I stopped there too! And had something delicious. On my off piste detour from the CF.
Each time I hiked past this rigid fellow his clothes and kit had changed. Since this was shot during my last full CF I wonder what is he wearing now?
Yes, forget that! I follow the local unofficial footpath across the railroad tracks. Not suggesting anyone else do that, mind. . .
Here’s ours from the 8th, June, 2022. We didn’t get any closer because others had already stopped at the resting place.My husband saw him this June and thought it was a pilgrim-astronaut! Totally new kit and clothes, including a silver thermal blanket and a helmet. He looked ready for launch! (Will try and post the 2022 sighting after fixing formatting issues)
The last time I saw him, below in 2007, my interpretation was "pilgrim-scarecrow." Always been so curious about this, thanks so much for mentioning it.

EDIT: Here's the new outfit as of June 2022. It might actually be more "space cowboy" (like the US sci-fi show Firefly, or the Japanese anime Cowboy Bebop) than traditional astronaut, but with a little imagination...
